NLCP Science mission statement:

It is the mission of the science department at NLCP to engage the students in a rigorous, lab-based science curriculum that prepares the student for success in a variety of college settings, while also helping students become scientifically literate adults.  The curriculum will stress lab skills, scientific literacy, problem solving, and an awareness of the role of science in this increasingly technological world.  Students will investigate the various scientific disciplines in order to understand how they are related to each other as well as how they differ from pseudo-scientific topics. The curriculum of the science department will help the student develop the self-confidence and enjoyment of science to pursue further studies at the collegiate level.
